FAQs for TopMinds Writing Classes

If you have any questions about any of our programs, please email us at contact@topmindstutoring.com

How are often your classes?

Our classes are held weekly in the Dougherty Community Center in San Ramon.

How many students are in your group classes?

Our class size is strictly limited to a maximum of 10 students. Unlike most classes in the area, we feel that by limiting class size in this way and providing fully personalized support we are able to provide an outstanding program that focuses on our students and their individuals needs.

Do your classes run all year?

Our tutoring sessions are based on the San Ramon Valley School Year. We run two 12-week sessions during the 2014-2015 school year. There are no tutoring sessions during Thanksgiving, Winter and Spring Breaks.

Can I join part way through a term?

Provided space is available, we are always happy for students to join at any point in the term. We maintain a waiting list for full classes.

Payment due for students joining a course part way through the term will be calculated based on the total number of classes remaining.

How do I pay for classes?

You can pay for each 12-week session online by clicking on the 'Buy Now' button next to the course description. Payment is due in full before we can reserve a place for you child.

Do I have to commit for a whole year?

You can decide to book for just 12-weeks or purchase both session 1 and session 2 classes, it's completely up to you!

What is the make-up class?

Unfortunately we are unable to offer refunds for missed classes, so please ensure your child is able to make the dates shown before purchasing. We do hold a free make-up class at the end of each session, if your child has missed a class they are welcome to attend to catch up the class they missed.

Can I pay online?

Yes, payments for our 12-week classes are completed online through Paypal (you do not require a Paypal account). We also accept checks but we can only secure your child's place once payment has been received.
